    Going to be at WDW over star wars weekend. What time do the storm troopers do the march in. We don't want to miss it. Can't seem to find any info on it. But have heard it is not to be missed!

    Sarah, do set your alarm so you will not miss the special opening of Disney's Hollywood Studios by stormtroopers.

    Typically a Star Wars Weekend day begins with Stormtroopers at the Gate. Surprisingly humorous for followers of the Dark Side, Imperial guards open the park with an entertaining skit performed on the entrance roof. Arrive about an hour before Disney's Hollywood Studios opens to see this rope drop number since sometimes the park admits guests early to accommodate the saga fans. To see stormtroopers march en masse, grab a spot to watch the Star Wars Celebrity Motorcade parade traditionally held in the afternoon. Last year this event began at 12:40 pm.

    Enjoy Star Wars Weekend you must!
